From the President's Desk

Good Evening e-Club Members and Friends of Rotary,

For those of you that have had a cushy few weeks let me tell you a bit about the goings on at the e-Club. We had our last Board Meeting for the year and our AGM all rolled into one at Chris and Lynn's home. Thank you very much they do put on a good meal.

I would like to also thank all the Members that nominated for Board positions for 2013-2014. It worked out beautifully with one person nominated for each position, so the jelly wrestling was held over until next time. I am proud to announce our President Elect, Mr. Geoff Baldwin, he has been looking after Membership for the last few months and is happy to step into the Presidency come July 1, 2013.  Geoff will have an awesome team with him to make the e-Club bigger and better than ever. The Minutes are all in the Members Dropbox for your perusal.

To finish this year's Forums on a high Tim our New Generations Director invited two energetic and enthusiastic young ladies to get us into the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) frame of mind. Although it was a lot easier getting the people at "The Shed" on their feet than the Members that were online, I was very pleased to see everyone jumping and singing in unison. Jessica the Team Leader and Megan definitely got some height in their jumps.

So far it looks like we have two applicants to send to RYLA in January 2013 and possibly a third. So that is very exciting. We are also sponsoring in partnership with Hope Island RC a young man to go to RYTS (Regional Youth Transition Seminar) coming up in the first week of December.

Yours in Rotary,

Rick Jewson
